Daniel Heinrich admitted in court to abducting, sexually assaulting, and murdering Jacob while pleading guilty to child pornography charges.
There's still not any additional details such as reasoning or if he'll be charged with Jacob's murder. The child porn charges alone will probably put him in jail for the rest of his life anyway... but still would like official clarification. I assume more details will be released.
Regardless, what needs to be done is to put this piece of crap in general population.

May be off topic but I visited the spot where they found Jacob's body earlier today. There are flowers and an inspirational plaque off the side of the road. It was also really cool and interesting talking to some of the locals that were there too about the case and just about life.

From one website:
"In September of 2014 Jared and Joy were featured on John Walsh’s CNN show the “The Hunt.” The FBI says it was the Walsh special that lead them to request a first-ever cold case review of the entire Wetterling case in November 2014.
It was that review that lead to a new investigation of the man who we now know — Danny Heinrich. Back in early 1990, Heinrich was a suspect not only in Jacob’s and Jared’s cases, but the Payesville cases, too."
Not sure if we can count Heinrich as a direct capture since they inspired the review but it wasn't a tip from the Hunt per se, (also he technically wasn't charged with Jacob's abduction/murder even though he admitted to everything), but obviously the Hunt played a significant role in helping to close the Wetterling case.
